Facials. They can either be fluff pieces that amount to a lackluster scrub and a mask or intense pore purging, face-peeling endeavors.
But what if we treated our skincare routine like our exercise regime? That’s what I had in mind when I visited Melanie Grant in Sydney’s Double Bay. Well that and the lure of her work as seen on Instagram, which features the post-facial mega-watt glows of Nicole Trunfio,Lara Worthington and Shanina Shaik. Grant is a pioneer in the trend towards next-level facials. An antidote to cosmetic enhancements, they prove that results can come from high-grade ingredients, products and manual techniques that naturally enhance the face, just as clean eating and smart exercise can transform the body.
